              Then she lifts the Fish up from the bassinet and holds him out to me. 'Go on, take him.' And to the Fish she says, 'This is your uncle.' I manage to clap my hands either side of the fish bundle. But I feel like I am holding an expensive glass. Once you're told not to drop it, all... you can think of is the glass shattering across the floor. When the baby is born-in a shabby caravan at a beach campground-it's clear he is not like other babies. But the family will try hard to protect and love and accept him. Perhaps all the more to make up for letting his troubled mother down. The young uncle grapples with his connection to the Fish. And as he tries to understand his family and its confusing secrets and shame, his sense of his own place in the world begins to crumble. Lloyd Jones's unique lyrical style is mesmerising in this tender story of family bonds, both strained and strengthened by tragedy, and the redemptive power of writing.

              NUKU is a powerful and important snapshot of Indigenous wahine today. Through wide-ranging voices this ambitious social documentary showcases diverse representations of leadership, systems change and success. Readers obtain authentic insight into life as an Indigenous woman in a ...way like never before. The 100 stories recorded here are of incredible w?hine who seek to influence the world around them. Each offer significance to the story of mana w?hine. From Oscar-nominated filmmakers and award-winning musicians, to scientists, entrepreneurs, tribal leaders, artists, environmental champions, knowledge holders, mothers and more. The youngest wahine is 14, the eldest is in her mid-70s, and their locations span both North and South Islands and across to R?kohu (Chatham Islands). The majority are wa?hine Ma?ori, with w?hine Moriori, Pasifika, Melanesian, Wijadjuri, Himalayan and Mexican also included. NUKU prioritises and celebrates the wa?hine experience: our ceremonies, our knowledge systems, our atua, our kaupapa, our lives. Each k?rero is accompanied by striking photographic portraits, inspiring generations of women to see themselves within these pages. NUKU (and the accompanying multi-media series) is entirely led, created by and about, Indigenous women. To honour collective story sovereignty and ensure a foundation of mana motuhake, this book has also been self-published.
